I am not Autocratic


To establish the IIUM students blogger community isn’t that easy. I keep on asking questions and suggestions and I myself have given few of mine in the previous entries. The latest one is the poll that you may see in the right panel of this blog.

However, it’s a fact that no one can deny: different people have different thoughts. Lain padang lain belalang. I’d like to address that differences shouldn’t be the barrier for unity. Even it is clearly mentioned in the Holy Quran that He purposely created us in groups for we to know each other. Well that I know you know better than I do; which chapter and which verse.

Back to the track, there’s a concern in me about using the name of “IIUM” in the name of the domain since we are not really recognized by the authority of IIUM. But think back, there’s a so-called group in one of group network site that uses the name called “Not-so-IIUM” in which the members are as what the name tells; they don’t portray the real values of muslimin and muslimah of IIUM students. Considering that, why shouldn’t we use the name iiumbloggers.com for the domain name right? No, I don’t mean that the destination of the blog will be like the “Not-so-IIUM” one, but the other way round. We want to provide a medium for discussion about latest updates about the university, and other related yet interesting matters like what discussed in this entry. I hope you got my point eh?

Meanwhile, I think I’ll take the name “United Bloggers Community of Students of IIUM”, abbreviated to UBCSI as the name of the community since no one expresses objection to the name previously, even some really love it. Is there anyone who doesn’t agree with this? Or you may have suggestions? Tell us.

Now I am working on registering the blog in wordpress.org and I’ll be using sempoihosting.com as the host and domain provider for the blog (credit to Anwar). Anything related to the expense for the hosting, I’ll be responsible for it. I don't mind. I just need you people to together establish the community by registering yourselves and promoting it to people. Bear in mind, we are talking about long term project here; it shouldn’t end once you finish studying in IIUM. That’s why it’s open to all as long as you satisfy the 3 conditions (read here). To a greater extent, if this project of building the community successfully works, blessed by Allah, insha-Allah we’ll have a lifelong virtual highly beneficial community via the internet! Amin...

So back to the topic, that’s what I mean about “not-an-autocratic”. I am open to suggestions people. I hope I am not alone here. We are talking about ourselves actually!

Autocratic = A person with unlimited power or authority

Huyoo, macam panas je topic :D

A bit comment for the name:
Rasanya better pada adress blog tu sendiri sudah dapat memberi gambaran to people that the blog is owned by IIUM students/ex-students or community.

Kalau nama panjang dengan singkatan maybe people tak recognise. Moga dengan adress je da cukup untuk bawak people masuk ziarah inshaAllah

Hidup IIUm Bloggers united!

i kinda agree dgn diorg..UBCSI mmg bunyi n nmpk cun..tp it's not really user friendly..org yg bkn regular mudah lupa..n nama mcm 2 i dun think very user friendly..simpler is better..

iiumbloggers.com

1 more thing..i wanna suggest we open up our range of topics which we can write about. i mean writing about IIUM-related issues is quite logical..but not necessarily the most practical. Cause we're gonna have insyaAllah a LOT of members/writers. If we limit the range of topics to IIUM-related issues only, we might not have many writers contributing. Not to say we should have open writing entirely, but maybe we expand the scope of topics. No personal entries of course, those are for personal blogs. But entries related to IIUM, Islam, motivational entries, social n political issues (to a certain extent of course), things like that.

I just think that with a potentially large members board, we should also have a large selection of topics to choose from. But some moderation by the site admin (zaki gompol ;p) would be required.

zulhilmi..

TQ!

szakif said...

jazli..

yup. exactly. and that's what i mean by and other related yet interesting matters like what discussed in this entry which is written in the entry. thanks for elaborating it more :D

pasal moderation tu, it's a must. kalo kite fikirkan lebih jauh lagi, kalaulah ditakdirkan blog itu "menjadi", mesti ramai yang nak menulis. dan of course ade admin or moderator yg kena mainkan peranan filter entry2 yang berkenaan dan berpatutan sahaja. brilliant suggestion bro!

MashaAllah..
My comment tuh were given before you made the article for this entry. It was only the cat which appear that time.

Seems that I already have the instinct on what you are going to write as what I commented is entry-related. Alhamdulillah. Good sign for IIUM bloggers United. ;)

Erk..nada bersemangat sekali lagik. Patik bersetuju dengan cadangan Tengku Jazli dan Tengku Zulhilmi di atas, dan patik akan terus juga menyokong Tengku Zaki yang mana Tengku akan menerajui tampuk pengurusan IIUM Bloggers United sebagai Penasihat utama. Hehe.

Once again,
Hidup IIUm Bloggers united!

I think u have captured some attention. So after this, maybe u can get the whole picture, and divide em into phases. List down the phases involved, then we can work on it phase by phase. It wud be more structural and informative if we discuss it phase by phase. Coz the ideas pointed out wud be more focus. My two cents. Thank you.

szakif said...

luppi..

great ideas also! insha Allah from time to time i'll inform the updates about the establishment of the blog and the community. these are the ones i have done so far and more will come.

i hope if anyone is asked for favor, you'd help me out ya? i mean, anyone la.. hehe..

that's why i said i hope i'm not alone here.. hu~
